Alesso‘s career has been pretty remarkable to watch in 2011. His monumental Refune EP featuring ‘Nillionaire’ and “Dynamite’ still receives support from Swedish House Mafia on a regular basis. Remixes like ‘Heiress Of Valentina’ for Dune landed on Tiesto’s Club Life compilation, his take on ‘River Flows In You‘ and ‘Party Rock Anthem’ were widely praised, and who could forget his Pete Tong supported ‘Save The World’ edit as well as euphoric ‘Good Love‘ remix for DEVolution. But today’s post is dedicated to arguably, the track that truly cemented him on the growing EDM scene: his interpretation of Alex Kenji, Starkillers, & Nadia Ali’s ‘Pressure‘. The now signature electronic stutters are the standout aspect of the track, taking a simple and eloquent original mix on a transformation into worldwide anthem. Props to all involved, especially Nadia Ali who’s lyrics and vocals provided so many clubbers with boosts of serotonin this year.
